Versatility and Long-Lasting Instrument Performance
Yamaha now offers a new and improved line of high-quality valve oils. The latest Yamaha lubricants include the new synthetic Superior Valve Oil, available in Light, Regular and Vintage viscosity. New for 2017 is a Super Light version for new instruments with particularly tight valves.
Developed for musicians seeking the highest quality lubricants, the four different viscosities of superior valve oils meet the needs of a variety of piston valve clearances and provide greater stability in varying temperatures and environments. Light Oil is ideal for instruments with a tight piston clearance and music styles demanding fast valve action; Super Light is more of that; Regular Oil is intended for instruments with regular piston clearance and players of all levels; and Vintage Oil works best on instruments with a large piston clearance, such as low brass and vintage instruments.
Yamaha Superior Oils contain ten times the corrosion-inhibiting properties of its predecessors and feature longer-lasting performance and protection. Results from extensive laboratory testing show that Yamaha Superior Oils outperformed the competition in pushing force, lower evaporation rate and anti-corrosion properties.
"High quality, long lasting valve oil is critical to players in any performance environment," said Ted Kuehnert, accessories marketing manager. "Yamaha Superior Oils have been painstakingly tested and proven to be the highest performing valve oils available."
These new lubricants from Yamaha have become some of our most popular, and are in the same league with other modern and quality lubricants such as Hetman and Monster.
